Word From The President 




Fr. Donald Senior, C.P. 



Dear Friend, 

Thank you for your interest in Catholic Theological Union. 

We believe that CTU offers you exciting opportunities to 
deepen your knowledge of our Catholic heritage and to prepare 
yourself to serve the mission of the church. 

We are blessed with a superb faculty who are not only leading 
scholars in their fields but skilled and caring teachers. Through 
the courses listed in this catalogue and through the numerous 
offerings available through cross-registration at our ten 
neighboring theological schools, you have access to one of 
the largest concentrations of theological resources in the world. 

You will also find a school with a heart, where students are 
welcomed and valued as partners in the educational process. 
We are a diverse community, including men and women, 
religious and lay, enriched by students and cultures from all 
over North America and around the globe. 

The church is very much alive at CTU and you can sense its 
vibrant spirit in our classrooms, at our liturgies, and at our 
celebrations. Our home in the Hyde Park section of Chicago 
is an exciting university neighborhood, near the center of one 
of America's greatest and most beautiful cities and in view of 
Lake Michigan and its celebrated parks. 

This is a time of renewed hope for the church at the beginning 
of this new millennium. Please join us in this great adventure 
of faith. 



Sincerely, 



/jyuUiJ) f^ 4 ^- ^ 



Fr. Donald Senior, C.P.

GENERAL INFORMATION 



INTRODUCTION: OUT OF THE ORDINARY 

This is not your average seminary. It's not your average university, either. And it's 
definitely not your average theological school. 

Catholic Theological Union is a place where good things happen, where people 
pursuing the priesthood study alongside lay women and men preparing for ministry 
or just hungry for a life of the spirit. When you walk the hallways of this place, when 
you sit in a classroom or stop for lunch in the cafeteria... wherever you are, you will feel 
the difference. Here you will experience the church at its best, and you will sense its 
vibrant spirit everywhere. 

Our faculty are leading scholars and skilled teachers who deeply care about their 
students. Our students are people from all over the world, from all walks of life, who 
are pursuing truth and in the process, are coming to see faith in a new way. 



HISTORY: IN THE SPIRIT OF VATICAN II 

In 1968 three religious communities came together and founded Catholic Theological 
Union (CTU). Their vision was to offer seminary students a priestly formation that 
mirrored the spirit of Vatican II — the renewal of the church. In the years since 
its inception, the school has become a richly diverse mosaic of students who are 
internationally and ethnically diverse, both men and women, religious and lay people, 
young and old. 

The faculty is comprised of distinguished men and women scholars who balance 
writing the leading books on theology with mentoring their students. CTU's programs 
have also expanded over the years to address the contemporary needs of the church 
in an increasingly global society. 

Today more than 35 religious orders send their students to CTU. In fact, one in every 
six religious order priests who are being ordained in the United States today is a CTU 
graduate. Over 3,000 CTU graduates serve the church across the U.S. and in 65 countries 
worldwide. They work in parishes, homeless shelters, prisons, hospitals, schools, colleges 
and universities, gang ministry, hospices, and a myriad of other ministry settings. 



General Information 



IDENTITY: A VISION FOR THE CHURCH 




Professors Barbara Reid, O.P., professor of New Testament 
Studies and Steve Bevans, S.V.D., Luzbatek Professor of 
Mission and Culture, team teach a theology course. 



Catholic Theological Union at 
Chicago (CTU), the largest Roman 
Catholic school of theology and 
ministry in the United States, prepares 
women and men to serve the church 
throughout the world. CTU is a 
community of inquiry where faculty 
and students engage in the pursuit 
of unparalleled academic excellence, 
inspired ministerial/pastoral 
leadership, and a spirit of devoted 
service. The setting for this 
collaborative effort is an urban, 
ecumenical, multicultural and 
university environment. 



MISSION: WITNESS TO THE GOSPEL 

The primary mission of Catholic Theological Union is the academic and pastoral 
formation of students preparing for priesthood and a variety of ministries in the United 
States and around the world. CTU also provides continuing theological education 
for clergy, religious, and lay persons. This process occurs within a community of faith 
in interaction with a living Catholic tradition and ecumenical, interfaith, and cross-cultural 
perspectives and resources. Through its degree programs and other educational and 
formational opportunities, CTU strives to educate effective leaders for the church whose 
mission is to witness Christ's good news of justice, love, and peace to people of all nations. 



SETTING: IN THE "CITY OF BIG SHOULDERS" 

Carl Sandburg's poem "Chicago" is an eloquent description of the city that surrounds 
Catholic Theological Union. It is a sprawling giant of a city whose sleek skyscrapers 
and tree-filled parks and gardens are visible from CTU's windows. Chicago is a city 
shaped by the dreams, values, and resiliency of its immigrant daughters and sons whose 
hands built the frontier outpost into the global city it is today. 

The city is home to many fine universities, colleges, libraries, museums, art galleries, 
theaters, churches, and concert halls. A city of culture and ground breaking architecture, 
it is also one of America's most naturally beautiful cities sheltering 500 parks and 
52,000 acres of forest preserves. The contour of 25 miles of parks and beaches sculpts 
a beautiful shoreline along Lake Michigan. 



Catholic Theological Union 



General Information 



The array of theological schools and libraries, religious organizations, and denominational 
headquarters located in Chicago make it the premier center of theological education in 
the United States. And Chicago has the second largest concentration of Roman Catholics 
in the country. 



It is the perfect place for CTU to call home. 



A DIVERSE NEIGHBORHOOD 

Chicago is a "city of neighborhoods," each with its own distinctive personality and 
peculiarities. CTU is set in the culturally rich and ethnically diverse neighborhood 
of Hyde Park. Anchored by the University of Chicago, Hyde Park is a stable, 
cosmopolitan, integrated community. With its tree-lined streets and gracious old homes 
Hyde Park sometimes feel like an historic Midwest town (except for the magnificent 
Chicago skyline just within view). 

One of the most religiously diverse areas of Chicago, Hyde Park has churches of most 
major Christian denominations, several synagogues, a mosque, and Hindu and Buddhist 
places of worship — all sharing the same neighborhood.

A Graduate School of Theology and Ministry 



General Information 



The five theology schools that form the Hyde Park Cluster with CTU are: Chicago 
Theological Seminary (United Church of Christ), the Divinity School of the University 
of Chicago, the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, McCormick Theological 
Seminary (Presbyterian), and Meadville/Lombard Theological School (Unitarian). 
CTU is a founding member of the Association of Chicago Theological Schools (ACTS), 
a consortium of 1 1 schools with a shared network of resources including library access, 
faculty interchange, symposiums and lectures, and some 1 ,000 courses taught by 
350 faculty. The collective library resources of the ACTS schools number 1.6 million 
books with over 5,000 periodicals. 



THE CAMPUS: A PLACE TO CALL HOME 

Originally built as the Aragon Hotel, the 10-story primary academic building is just blocks 
from the shore of Lake Michigan. It houses classrooms, administrative and faculty offices, 
conference and meeting rooms, the Bechtold Library, a computer center, the Bernardin 
Center, the Chicago Center for Global Ministries, the Joan of Arc Chapel, the Courtyard 
Art Gallery, a full-service dining room, and several floors of residences. 

Across the street from the main building stand Paluch Hall and a five-story structure. 
These buildings contain student residences, offices, and classroom space. Classes, 
meetings, and events are also held at Rodfei Zedek synagogue, one block north of CTU. 



HYDE PARK 

The main shopping district of Hyde Park, several blocks west of the school, offers all 
the amenities of a university town including cafes, a movie theater, health food and 
grocery stores, and restaurants serving every imaginable cuisine from French to Cajun. 
Also located in Hyde Park are the DuSable Museum of African- American History, 
the Museum of Science and Industry, the Oriental Institute Museum, the Smart Museum 
of Art, several bookstores (including two theological bookstores), and Robie House, 
a Frank Lloyd Wright home and shop. Trains and buses to the rest of the city and two 
airports are within a block of the school. Chicago's downtown is just a 15 minute ride 
on public transportation. 



THE BECHTOLD LIBRARY 

The Paul Bechtold Library contains 140,000 volumes and receives 480 periodicals, 
providing resources for study and research by students and faculty members. Beyond 
the general theological holdings, the library has special collections in mission studies, 
history of religions, and homiletics. Recent additions to the library include the

SPECIAL PROGRAMS AND RESOURCES 



The Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Center 
for Theology and Ministry 

The Bernardin Center for Theology and Ministry honors 
Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, long-time friend and honorary 
alumnus of CTU, who demonstrated a pastoral leadership 
that brought the reforms of Vatican II to the Catholic 
Church and encouraged people of faith 
across the United States and around the 
world. Shortly before he died, Cardinal 
Bernardin approved the establishment 
of a center in his name at CTU that 
would continue to build upon his 
vision of the church. 

To further that vision the 
Bernardin Center prepares 
women and men, religious 
and lay, for ministry 
and leadership. Through 
innovative academic 
training and with the aid 
of generous scholarships, 
Bernardin Scholars focus 
on the signature issues 
of the Cardinal's vision: reconciliation and peacemaking, life issues, interreligious dialogue, 
the role of religion in society, the mission of Catholic health care, and the Catholic 
Common Ground Initiative. These promising scholars carry on and extend the vision 
of Cardinal Bernardin. 




The Bernardin Center of Theology and Ministry, named for Cardinal Joseph 
Bernardin, sponsors academic training, public forums, lectures and 
conferences in the signature issues of the Cardinal's vision: reconciliation 
and peacemaking, interreligious dialogue, the role of religion in society, 
the consistent ethic of life, and the Catholic Common Ground Initiative. 



The Center also sponsors lectures, theological research, public discussions, and programs 
in areas of concern to the Catholic Church. These include the areas of Catholic- Jewish 
and Catholic-Muslim relationships. 

The Catholic- Jewish Studies Program 

John Pawlikowski, O.S.M. Director 

The Jewish Studies program, an initiative of CTU since the early years, has become 
an integral part of the Bernardin Center. The name is now the Catholic-Jewish Studies 
program, and its array of lectures, workshops, and courses of study has been significantly 
expanded. The purpose of the Catholic-Jewish Studies program is to present first-rate 
Jewish scholarship and address the practical concerns of Catholic- Jewish relations — all in 
a setting that prepares future leaders. The Archdiocese of Chicago acknowledged CTU's 



Catholic Theological Union 



General Information 



leading role in this regard when it awarded the 1995 Nostra Aetate Award for 
Interreligious Dialogue to faculty members Rev. Pawlikowski and the late Rabbi Hayim 
Perelmuter. Rabbi Perelmuter established the program with Rev. Pawlikowski and worked 
with him for 30 years. A significant project of the program is the annual Catholic-Jewish 
Studies Conference sponsored by the Bernardin Center. This conference is to be named 
for Rabbi Hayim Perelmuter. Another important project is the Shapiro Lectures which 
continue to bring outstanding scholars to CTU. On-going support from the Jewish 
Chautauqua Society, the Annie Gamble Foundation, the Charles and M.R. Shapiro 
Foundation, and the Hans and Annaliese Elias Trust helps fund the quarterly 
lectureship series. 

Catholic-Muslim Studies Program 

Scott Alexander Director 

Sponsored by the Bernardin Center and funded by a grant from the James and Catherine 
Denny Foundation, the Catholic-Muslim Studies program is dedicated to building bridges 
of mutual understanding and profound respect between Muslims and Christians. The 
vision of this program is to create significant opportunities for the relationship between 
Muslims and Christians to deepen and to reflect the noblest values and highest ideals 
of their common spiritual heritage. 

The Catholic-Muslim Studies program sponsors academic study, publication, dialogue, 
cultural events, public education, and interfaith social justice activities. Among the most 
important events sponsored by the program is its annual conference which provides 
an opportunity for scholars, community leaders, and the media to come together 
to articulate and pursue creative avenues of dialogue and social action involving Muslim 
and Christian communities. 

The Catholic-Muslim Studies Program works in close cooperation with the Council 
of Islamic Organizations in Chicago, as well as with such organizations as the Muslim 
American Society and the Islamic Society of North America. 



CENTER OF CENTERS 

Chicago lies in the heartland of the continental United States and CTU, with its unique 
history and mission, is at the center of the American Catholic Church. This advantageous 
location and CTU's unique character have drawn a succession of distinguished religious 
centers and programs to the campus and earned CTU the title "center of centers." 

The centers directly sponsored by CTU are: The Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Center for 
Theology and Ministry, the Hesburgh Center for Continuing Formation in Ministry, the 
Institute of Religious Formation, the Chicago Center for Global Ministry (co-sponsored 
by Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and McCormick Theological Seminary), 



A Graduate School of Theology and Ministry 



General Information 



and the Center for the Study of Religious Life (sponsored by CTU, the Conference of 
Major Superiors of Men, and the Leadership Conference of Women Religious). 

Independent centers located on campus are: the Christian Institute for the Study of 
Human Sexuality, the National Coalition for Church Vocations, the National Religious 
Vocation Conference, the National Association for Lay Ministry, the National Center 
for the Laity, and Stauros, U.S.A. (focused on human suffering). 

The Chicago Center for Global Ministries 

Dr. Mark Thomsen Director 

To meet the growing challenges of preparation for ministry posed by current trends 
in migration and globalization, CTU, the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, 
and McCormick Theological Seminary jointly established the Chicago Center for Global 
Ministries (CCGM). The Center coordinates the considerable resources of the three 
schools and builds upon them to address these challenges in a truly ecumenical and 
catholic way. World mission and witness, cross-cultural studies, the study of and dialogue 
with the world's religions, urban ministry, and studies concerned with peace, justice, 
and ecology receive special attention. The Center focuses on these areas in the following 
ways: coordinates and offers courses, provides opportunities for faculty and student 
enrichment, offers immersion experiences through the cross-cultural quarter, sponsors 
the annual Scherer Lecture on Mission, coordinates the annual World Mission Institute, 
and staffs the mission personnel orientation sponsored by several church bodies. 

Center for the Study of Religious Life 

Barbara Kraemer, O.S.F. Director 

Sponsored by the Conference of Major Superiors of Men, the Leadership Conference 
of Women Religious, and CTU, the purpose of the Center for the Study of Religious Life 
(CSRL) is to promote the viability of religious life. The Center conducts interdisciplinary 
and intercultural reflection on the life of Catholic religious and designs and develops 
tools that resource religious congregations and their leadership. 

The Christian Institute for the Study of Human Sexuality 

James Gill, S.J., M.D. Director 

The Christian Institute for the Study of Human Sexuality offers a one-month residential 
program for persons involved in clergy and religious formation, spiritual direction, 
pastoral care, and other forms of ministry aimed at developing a mature and integrated 
personality in those under their care. Through guided independent study, one can achieve 
a deeper understanding of the ways sexuality is connected with spirituality, psychosexual 
maturation, celibacy, relationships, community life, and communications. Seminars and 
individual tutoring, supported by an up-to-date and highly specialized library, explore 
sexuality and personal development from scientific, educational, and Christian points 
of view. Studies begin the first Monday of each month throughout the year.

General Information 



SPIRITUAL FORMATION PROGRAMS 

An important component of a CTU theological education is spiritual formation. There 
are three special programs that provide formation to lay women and men: the Tolton and 
Romero Scholars programs, which address the formation of African-American and 
Hispanic scholars, respectively, and the Emmaus Program which serves all lay students. 
Religious orders provide formation for their students. 



There are also opportunities for community 
and individual prayer. The Joan of Arc 
Chapel on the 6 tn floor of the building 
at 5401 S. Cornell Avenue is available 
to students for private and group prayer 
throughout the day. Students are also 
welcome at the liturgies of the participating 
religious communities. CTU also sponsors 
all-school liturgies regularly throughout 
the year. These celebrations are important 
moments in the life of CTU as a community 
of faith. 

Emmaus Program for Continuing 
Lay Formation 

Judy Logue Director 
Robert Wheeler Associate Director 
The Emmaus program is the formation 
component required of and open to all 
independent lay students* enrolled in the 
Master of Divinity, Master of Arts, or 
Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies degree 
programs. The purpose of the Emmaus 
program is to assist students in the 
formation of a ministerial identity that 
integrates personal and spiritual life with 
ministerial and academic experiences 
through the practice of theological reflection.

The Emmaus program includes: a choice of two of three retreats offered each year; 
spiritual direction with a qualified spiritual director; participation in the theological 
reflection groups (meet three times each quarter); and two annual covenant meetings 
with the director to outline and evaluate personal goals for the year. 

In addition to the required components the program offers various workshops, social 
gatherings, and other opportunities designed to support and fulfill the needs and interests 
of independent students. For students who commute and those working while studying 
in graduate school, Emmaus offers valuable support and assists in connecting to the 
wider community. 

Graduates are also invited to return for on-going formation through any of the Emmaus 
offerings in order to minister more effectively to and with the people of God. 



The Oscar Romero Scholars Program 

Jaime Bascuinan Director 

The Hispanic Catholic community is the fastest growing segment of the U.S. Catholic 
Church. This is true in Chicago where more than one third of the 2.3 million Catholics 
are Hispanic/Latino. Jointly sponsored by CTU and the Archdiocese of Chicago, the 
Oscar Romero Scholars Program prepares Hispanic/Latino lay people for professional 

ministry by providing full financial 







support as they earn a graduate degree. 
Scholars commit to work in the 
Archdiocese of Chicago for a minimum 
of three years after graduation. 

With formation as an integral part of 
the program, Romero Scholars prepare 
themselves for ministry through either 
the Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies 
or Master of Divinity degree programs. 
Monthly formational and theological 
reflection sessions, annual retreats, 
and special workshops help the Romero 
Scholars develop and deepen a vision 
of ministry rooted in the Gospel — one 
which is practical, culturally sensitive, 
and personally enriching.

The Augustus Tolton Pastoral Ministry Program 

Vanessa White Director 

To meet the growing needs for professionally trained and fully credentialed ministers in 
the Black Catholic community in Chicago, CTU and the Archdiocese of Chicago jointly 
sponsor the Augustus Tolton Pastoral Ministry program. The Tolton program provides 
graduate theological education and formation to qualified Black Catholic women and 
men who want to minister in the Archdiocese of Chicago. Tolton Scholars earn a theology 
degree with full financial support and commit to work in the Archdiocese of Chicago 
for a minimum of three years after graduation. 

Tolton Scholars participate in activities designed to enhance their own spirituality 
and integrate spiritual formation, academic understanding, and practical ministerial 
skills. All of these activities take place within the context of the African- American culture 
in Chicago. This formation consists of twice-monthly theological reflection with other 
scholars, retreats, and participation in specified events and seminars. 

Formation Council 

The formation directors from CTU's participating communities and the director of 
ministerial formation comprise the Formation Council. The council provides formation 
directors with an opportunity to share experiences and insights regarding the spiritual 
dimension of priestly and religious formation. The council may make recommendations 
to the administration regarding policies that affect the religious well-being of the student 
body in general and of the students from participating communities in particular. Members 
of the Formation Council are integrated into the academic and ministerial programs 
through their presence at the Faculty Assembly, their service on faculty and other 
committees, and in some cases, by serving on the faculty.

NEW THEOLOGY REVIEW 

The New Theology Review, published by the Liturgical Press, is a joint project 
of Catholic Theological Union and Washington Theological Union in 
Washington, D.C. The goal of the journal is to provide pastoral ministers with 
fresh and relevant resources that relate the various fields of theological study 
to issues in contemporary culture. Although aimed at a readership that is 
primarily North American, the journal's purview is worldwide. Articles are 
solicited from the faculties of the sponsoring institutions as well as from other 
leading theologians and commentators. 

VISITING SCHOLARS 

The Chicago Province of the Society of the Divine Word established the 
Divine Word Scholar-in-Residence program in 1976 to bring scholars from

ACADEMIC PROGRAMS 



DEGREE PROGRAMS 

In 1967 the Illinois Department of Higher Education approved Catholic Theological 
Union as a degree-granting institution. Four degrees are offered: the Master of Divinity 
(M.Div.), the Master of Arts in theology (MA.), the Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies 
(M.A.P.S.), and the Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.). These degrees are fully accredited 
by both the Association of Theological Schools and the North Central Association 
of Colleges and Secondary Schools. 

In addition to these degree programs, CTU and the University of Chicago School of 
Social Service Administration offer a dual A.M./M.Div. degree program. By a special 
arrangement with the University of Chicago, students may also pursue a coordinated 
sequence of programs leading to the M.Div. degree from CTU and the Ph.D. from the 
University of Chicago Divinity School. 

A general description of each degree program follows. A complete description of the 
regulations and requirements for these programs appears in the appropriate degree manual 
available from the program director. 

THE MASTER OF DIVINITY PROGRAM (M.Div.) 

Roger Schroeder, S.V.D. Director 
The Master of Divinity program prepares students for full-time professional ministry 
in the Roman Catholic Church. This program of theological education consists of 
classroom learning, guided ministerial experience, structures for integrative reflection, 
and personal/spiritual formation. As the basic professional degree in ministry, the 
M.Div. has two tracks. Track I is best suited to meet the needs of lay and religious 
men and women who will not be ordained. Track II is for candidates for the ordained 
ministry and it follows the specifications for the academic and ministerial formation 
of candidates for ordination as required by The Program of Priestly Formation 
(Washington: USCC, 1992). 

Formation 

Formation is essential to the life and work of the minister and therefore required 
for all students in the M.Div. program. For students who are members of religious 
congregations, the formational requirements of the congregation are considered integral 
to their program of study. Likewise, students in the M.Div. program who are not members 
of a religious community participate in the Emmaus Program for Continuing Lay 
Formation, the Augustus Tolton Pastoral Ministry Program or the Oscar Romero Scholars 
Program. Each of these programs arranges retreats, individual spiritual direction, 
theological reflection groups and meetings with the respective director to outline personal 
goals for each year of study. 27 



Academic Programs 



Advising 

A faculty advisor assists each M.Div. student in selecting courses that will fulfill program 
requirements and meet each student's educational and vocational goals. The Field 
Education Director guides the student's engagement in supervised ministry experiences. 

Courses 

A selection of non-credit courses in philosophy are offered to help M.Div. students meet 
the prerequisites in philosophy for this degree. Track II students may take 300 level 
theology courses to meet the prerequisites in theology/religious studies. They will be 
given advanced standing rather than credit in those theological areas. The Master of 
Divinity program is composed of both foundational and advanced courses. 

Foundational Courses (300 level) These courses introduce particular fields of study 
and are designed to provide knowledge and skills for advanced work. Foundational 
courses are required in Old Testament, New Testament, experience of religion, church 
history (two courses), Christian ethics, social ethics, theology, pastoral care, and 
liturgy. The foundational courses are the same for Track I and II students. They total 
30 quarter hours of work. 

Besides these foundational courses, all M.Div. students normally participate in 
Ministry Practicum I (nine credit hours), a supervised ministry experience with 
theological reflection supplemented by colloquia. All beginning students in ministry 
programs are also required to take three non-credit workshops on issues considered 
important to ministry, such as professional standards of conduct. 

Advanced Courses (400 and 500 level) These courses are designed to enhance 
knowledge and skills in various disciplines. Some build on the foundational courses 
and others introduce new areas of learning. Track I students take 69 hours of 
advanced courses while Track II students take 102 hours. These courses are 
distributed as follows:

Candidacy 

Students must apply for M.Div. candidacy when they have completed 25-33 percent of 
the required hours (27-36 quarter hours for Track I, 36-48 quarter hours for Track II). 

Concentrations 

While the Master of Divinity provides general ministry preparation, students may 
choose to pursue particular fields of study by focusing their program in one of the 
following areas: 

M.Div. with Bible Concentration The goal of this concentration is to help M.Div. 
students further ground their ministerial studies in biblical studies. 

M.Div. with Health Care Mission Service Concentration The goal of this 
concentration is to provide students with grounding and development in the area 
of health care mission leadership. 

M.Div. with Pastoral Theology Concentration The goal of this concentration 

is to allow students to coordinate their studies so as to enhance the general practice 

of ministry by pursuing a chosen ministerial focus from a variety of disciplines. 

M.Div. with Word and Worship Concentration The goal of this concentration is to 
provide students with further grounding and development in liturgy and preaching. 

M.Div. with World Mission Concentration The goal of this concentration is to enable 
students to give their program a mission or cross-cultural focus by taking courses 
which highlight the reality of cultural and religious pluralism in the global church. 

The concentrations allow students to focus about 40 percent of their advanced courses, 
general electives, and field education in their chosen field of interest. Interested students 
should choose an area of concentration before beginning advanced requirements. 
A complete description and the requirements of each concentration appear in the M.Div. 
program manual. 



MASTER OF ARTS PROGRAM (M.A.) 

Gilbert Ostdiek, O.F.M. Director 

Two types of Master of Arts in Theology degrees are offered: the Research M.A. 
and the General Academic M.A. The hallmark of the M.A. program is flexibility, with 
the individual student's program negotiated between the student, the academic advisor, 
and the M.A. Director. It is possible to pursue the M.Div. and M.A. programs 
concurrently.

Academic Programs 



Formation 

Formation is essential to the life and work of a teacher of theology and therefore 
required for all students in the M.A. program. For students who are members of religious 
congregations, the formational requirements of the congregation are considered integral 
to their program of study. Likewise, students in the M.A. program who are not members 
of a religious community participate in the Emmaus Program for Continuing Lay 
Formation, the Augustus Tolton Pastoral Ministry Program or the Oscar Romero 
Scholars Program. Each of these programs arranges retreats, individual spiritual direction, 
theological reflection groups and meetings with the respective director to outine goals 
for each year of study. 

Areas of Concentration 

Students may choose one of several concentrations: Old Testament, New Testament, 
Bible studies, church history, ethics, liturgy, spirituality, systematic theology, and 
world mission. The requirements specific to each concentration are described in the 
M.A. program manual. 

Research M.A. 

The Research M.A. provides the theological background for those who wish to prepare 
for entrance into a doctoral program, to teach at the secondary or college level, or to 
develop greater academic expertise in theological studies. The program requires 36 quarter 
hours of course work (12 courses) distributed as follows: 24 hours (eight courses) in the 
area of concentration and two other courses in each of two other theological disciplines 
(12 hours). All courses are on the 400 level or higher. 

All students in the Research M.A. program must have a reading knowledge of at least 
one modern language other than English. Students concentrating in biblical studies also 
demonstrate proficiency in Hebrew and Greek. Those concentrating in historical and 
doctrinal studies must have proficiency in Latin. Students should be ready to demonstrate 
their language competency as early as possible in their program. Language courses are 
available locally in the Hyde Park area. 

After course work is completed, students take a two-part comprehensive examination 
in which they show their grasp of theological method and the content of the disciplines 
that are part of their program. The content and approach of the examination are described 
more fully in the M.A. Program Manual. 

The final requirement is a thesis in which students show their ability to do competent work 
in their area of concentration and give evidence of research skills and critical thought.

Academic Programs 



General Academic M.A. 

The General Academic M.A. provides the theological background for those who wish to 
teach at the secondary or college level or who want to develop greater academic expertise in 
theological studies. The areas of concentration are the same as those for the Research M.A. 

The program consists of 45 hours of course work distributed as follows: 30 hours 
(10 courses) in the student's area of concentration, 12 hours (four courses) in another 
theological discipline, and three hours (one course) in a third discipline. All courses are 
to be at the 400 level or higher. 

There is no language requirement except for those who concentrate in biblical studies, 
Old Testament, or New Testament. Those students need to have a basic knowledge of 
Hebrew and Greek. 

Following completion of course work, the student takes a two-part comprehensive 
examination. The goals and content of this examination are found in the M.A. program 
manual. There is no thesis for the General Academic M.A. 



MASTER OF ARTS IN PASTORAL STUDIES PROGRAM (M.A.P.S.) 

Jeanette Lucinio, S.R Director 

The Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies (M.A.P.S.) is a professional degree designed 
to enhance a person's ability to serve as a minister in the church. Building on previous 
professional ministerial experience, this program combines theological study, a focus 
for developing pastoral skills, and the integration of the two. Those who have some 
ministerial experience, those who wish to prepare for new ministries, and those who want 
to improve their effectiveness in their current ministries will find this program helpful. 

Formation 

Formation is essential to the life and work of the minister and therefore required 
for all students in the M.A.P.S. program. Students from religious communities receive 
formation within their individual communities. Students in the M.A.P.S. program 
who are not members of a religious community participate in the Emmaus Program 
for Continuing Lay Formation, the Augustus Tolton Pastoral Ministry Program, or the 
Oscar Romero Scholars Program. Each of these programs arranges retreats, individual 
spiritual direction, theological reflection groups and meetings with the Director to outline 
personal goals for each year of study. 

While the M.Div. is meant to be initial preparation for ministry, the M.A.P.S. meets 
the special needs of those changing ministries or upgrading ministerial skills after some 
years of experience in ministry. As a program providing specific ministerial skills and 
competencies along with general theological understanding, the M.A.P.S. differs from

Academic Programs 



the M.A. and cannot be pursued concurrently with it. However, it is possible to apply 
the work done in the M.A.RS. program toward the M.Div. program. Work done in the 
certificate programs can be applied toward the M.A.RS. degree. 

Areas of Concentration 

Students can concentrate their studies in the following disciplines: biblical studies, 
liturgical studies, Hispanic pastoral studies, and world mission. Specific requirements 
for these concentrations are found in the M.A.RS. program manual. 

Courses 

The course work (72 hours) in this program is distributed into three areas: the theological 
disciplines, pastoral skills, and integrative experiences. The 42 hours (14 courses) 
that provide grounding in the theological disciplines are distributed as follows: 



Biblical Studies 


12 


Church History 


3 


Doctrinal Studies 


12 


Ethics 


6 


Liturgy 


3 


Cross-Cultural Studies 


3 


Pastoral Care

The 21 hours that aim to develop pastoral skills are distributed as follows: 

Area of Concentration 1 8 

Elective 3 

All beginning students in ministry programs are also required to take three non-credit 
workshops on issues considered important to ministry, such as professional standards 
of conduct. 

Nine hours of course work involve integrative experiences. The first three hours comprise 
the M.A.RS. Colloquium. This course, normally taken at the beginning of the program, 
helps students reflect on their previous ministerial experience. The M.A.RS. Colloquium II, 
a second integrative experience, occurs later in the program and is a fuller integration of 
pastoral skills, theological reflection and ministerial experience. The final three hours 
are devoted to the M.A.RS. project, which is oriented to the student's projected area 
of pastoral ministry. The complete description of this project is found in the M.A.RS. 
program manual. 

Recognition of the diverse backgrounds of the adults who pursue the M.A.RS. degree 
results in individually designed courses of study that enable students to achieve their 
objectives in the program.

ECUMENICAL DOCTOR OF MINISTRY PROGRAM (D.MIN.) 

Dianne Bergant, C.S.A. Director 

The Ecumenical Doctor of Ministry program, offered jointly by Catholic Theological 
Union, the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, and McCormick Theological 
Seminary, is an advanced professional degree for lay and ordained ministers. The purpose 
of the program is to help those with significant experience in ministry integrate 
advanced theological study with the development of pastoral skills to enhance the 
practice of ministry. 

Program Design 

The D.Min. program balances the acquisition of content and the development of skills 
brought together in an integrated fashion. The program uses peer, supervised, and 
self-directed learning experiences along with classroom instruction. 

Concentrations 

Students choose one of the following concentrations as a focus for the D.Min. program: 
cross-cultural ministries, liturgy, or spirituality. 

Cross-Cultural Ministries 

The cross-cultural ministries concentration centers on areas of ministry where cultural 
differences raise special challenges to pastoral and missionary activity. The concentration 
is interdisciplinary and ecumenical in scope. 

Liturgy 

The concentration in liturgy has the goal of serving the entire worship event to make it 
more authentic and effective. It combines historical and systematic studies with pastoral 
methods to enable students to construct worship in the light of liturgical traditions and 
to assess the effectiveness of worship in particular communities. 

Spirituality 

The concentration in spirituality is designed to enhance the reflective and pastoral skills 
of those whose ministerial goal is to foster spiritual development through leadership 
within Christian communities. The concentration emphasizes the leader's growth in 
theological, historical, and cross-cultural awareness and in pastoral expertise. 

Program Structure 

The program requires 45 hours of course work (15 courses at the 500 or 600 level). 
These are distributed as follows: 



Core Colloquia 


9 


Leadership Practicum 


3 


Electives 


27 


Thesis-project 


6 



34 Catholic Theological Union 



Academic Programs 



The minimum time required for completion of the program components, except the 
thesis-project, is one academic year plus a two-week intensive module in September. 
Preparation and approval of the thesis-project usually involve one academic year. 
Students may pursue the program on a part-time basis, provided they have completed 
Core Colloquia I and II in their first year. 

Core Colloquia 

In the three core colloquia, students explore methodological frameworks for ministry from 
the perspective of their experience. In Core Colloquia I and II, students think together about 
the nature of ministry and its methods, primarily through case studies. Core Colloquium in 
prepares the students to write their thesis-projects. 

Leadership Practicum 

This component of the D.Min. program addresses questions of leadership. 

Electives 

The 27 hours of electives are ordinarily distributed to include 15 hours (five courses) 
in the area of concentration and 12 hours (four courses) outside of the area. Requirements 
specific to each concentration are described in the D.Min. program manual. 

Thesis-Project 

Upon completion of their course work and admission to candidacy, students write a 
thesis-project. This thesis-project addresses the nature and practice of ministry in the 
area of concentration. Candidates are to identify a specific concern in ministry, bringing 
to bear both the appropriate literature and critical theological reflection and proposing 
a response. 

Evaluations 

All students are evaluated at three specific times during their program. The initial 
evaluation follows Core Colloquium II at the end of the fall quarter. The second is the 
candidacy evaluation. It assesses the student's development and prospects for successful 
completion of the program. This evaluation takes place after Core Colloquium III. 
The final evaluation is the approval of the completed thesis-project. A complete description 
of these evaluations can be found in the D.Min. program manual. 



CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS 

Several certificate programs are offered which address the needs of those who want 
to continue their theological education or to prepare themselves for new ministries. 
Students may earn certificates in the following areas: Biblical Spirituality, Cross-Cultural 
Mission, Health Care Mission Leadership, Liturgical Studies, Pastoral Studies, and 
Spiritual Formation. Certificates are awarded for 36 hours of course work (12 courses), 
the equivalent of three academic quarters of work.

Certificate in Biblical Spirituality 

Barbara E. Bowe, R.S.C.J. Director 
The certificate in Biblical Spirituality combines course work, special seminars, and 
prayer centered on the Bible as the basis of Christian living and experience. Normally, 
this program begins with the fall quarter in Israel followed by the winter and spring 
quarters at CTU. Alternative ways of fulfilling the 36 hours of course work are possible. 
Students may choose from the course offerings of the Biblical Literature and Languages 
department and also from offerings of other departments. Students have the option of 
extending their study for an additional year to earn the M.A.P.S. degree. Credits from 
the certificate program are applicable to that degree program. 

Certificate in Cross-Cultural Mission 

Scott C. Alexander Director 
This certificate consists of 12 courses, all of which must have a cross-cultural (C) 
designation. An introductory course will be followed by courses in mission history, 
mission or cross-cultural methodology, and one cultural area. Most of the courses 
are elective giving the student flexibility in exploring a variety of issues in theological 
disciplines while still maintaining a cross-cultural mission perspective. Returned and 
furloughed missionaries and those preparing for a ministry in a cross-cultural setting 
will find this certificate program helpful. 

Certificate in Health Care Mission Leadership 

Thomas Nairn, O.F.M. Director 
This certificate is designed to prepare the student for work in the area of health care 
mission effectiveness. Its aim is to help develop those competencies for health care 
mission leadership articulated by the Catholic Health Association. The 12 courses are 
divided among four areas: foundation work in theology and ethics, advanced theology 
and ethics, health care leadership issues, and integration. An internship is required 
as part of the integrative area. 

Certificate in Liturgical Studies 

Edward Foley, Capuchin Director 
This certificate requires 24 hours in the area of liturgy and 12 hours in doctrinal studies. 
Each student in the program develops an individual program in consultation with the 
director of the certificate program. 

Certificate in Pastoral Studies 

Gilberto Cavazos-GonzAlez, O.F.M. Director 
This is the most general and least structured of the certificate programs. Students can 
design a program to meet their individual needs, enrolling in any 12 courses (36 hours). 
Students can shape their program of studies in consultation with the director. It is 
strongly suggested that students include some pastoral ministry courses in their 
curriculum for this certificate.

Academic Programs 



Certificate in Spiritual Formation 

Mary Frohlich Director 
Students enrolled in the Certificate in Spiritual Formation program may design a 
personalized plan of 12 courses which should include "Issues in Spiritual Formation" 
and six or seven other "S" or "MP" courses. This certificate program may be appropriate 
for formation directors, those who want an academic background to enhance a ministry 
of spiritual direction, those who want to augment their preparation for other spiritual 
ministries, or those who wish to do a year's study in spirituality without the constraints 
of a degree program. 



CONTINUING EDUCATION 

Opal Easter Director 

Continuing education offers opportunities for professional and personal development. 
Students may choose courses most suited to their specific goals. The certificate and 
sabbatical programs provide a structure for students within which to continue their 
education. It is also possible to select courses without any programmatic structure. 

Distance Learning/Off-Site Learning 

Several opportunities for off-site study are offered in the Chicago area and beyond. 
To accommodate degree programs students and those looking for theological enrichment, 
courses are offered each quarter at off-site locations in the Chicago land area. Current 
locations include downtown Chicago (St. Peter's), Inverness (Holy Family), and the 
dioceses of Gary, Indiana, and Joliet, Illinois. Courses at these locations can be taken 
for credit or for Continuing Education Units (CEUs). 

Evenings and Weekends 

To better meet the intellectual and spiritual needs of busy people with demanding daily 
schedules, graduate-level courses are offered on evenings and Saturdays at our Hyde 
Park campus and at several convenient off-campus locations. The same exceptional 
theological and ministerial courses available at the Hyde Park campus and taught by 
our own superb faculty are offered in the suburbs and downtown. 

Leadership Seminars in Pastoral Administration 

Each year leadership seminars are offered dealing with a variety of areas of pastoral 
administration including leadership styles and team building, workplace relationships, 
personnel issues, budgets and financial reporting, public relations, and fund raising. 
Presented in an interactive style these seminars help students gain a basic knowledge 
of pastoral administration so that they are able to identify the gifts lay leaders bring to 
pastoral settings and collaborate more effectively with them. Students who take all six 
seminars may receive three credits in either the M.Div. or M.A.P.S. degree program.

The Summer Institute 

Opal Easter Director 

The purpose of the Summer Institute is to provide an opportunity to enrich and enhance 
effectiveness in ministry or deepen theological and spiritual understanding. The Summer 
Institute offers three independent weeks of intensive courses. Each course meets for two 
and one half hours daily for five days. The areas of study include scripture, leadership, 
liturgy, pastoral ministry, and spirituality. Classes are conveniently scheduled morning, 
afternoon, and night, and can be taken for graduate credit (semester or quarter) or 
for continuing education units (CEUs). Liturgy and common prayer are offered daily. 
Participants earn a Summer Institute Certificate in Pastoral Studies upon completion of 
12 Summer Institute courses taken for credit or CEUs. The Institute attracts international 
students as well as students from all over the United States. 



SABBATICALS 

Sabbaticals offer an opportunity to refresh one's spirit, refine ministry skills, and deepen 
knowledge and faith. Two sabbatical options are available to meet the student's needs 
and schedules: 

The Hesburgh Sabbatical Program, a four-month curriculum-centered 
community-based experience 

The Independent Sabbatical Program, an individually-designed educational 
and cultural experience 

The Hesburgh Center 
for Continuing Formation in Ministry (HCCFM) 

Rev. Eugene Lauer Co-Director JoAnn McCaffrey Co-Director 
Located for many years at the University of Notre Dame, the Hesburgh Center Sabbatical 
program now resides at Catholic Theological Union. This four month sabbatical program 
of 32 brief courses, taught every semester by outstanding faculty, is designed to provide 
a holistic renewal experience for clergy, religious, and lay ministers in the Catholic 
tradition. In a time of dramatic global transition in this Third Millennium, the program 
invites participants to reflect on their own ministerial/spiritual development in the light 
of a changing world and in the context of a community of co-learners. 

Individually-Designed Sabbatical Program 

Rev. Eugene F. Lauer Director 

This sabbatical program provides experienced ministers with the opportunity to design 
a program to fulfill their own individual goals. Choices include courses in the academic 
curriculum and in the Hesburgh Center program, spiritual direction, lectures at the area 

universities and theological schools, and all of the cultural resources of the Chicago area. 

Persons may enroll for one, two, or three quarters and may take courses for credit or for audit.

THE INSTITUTE OF RELIGIOUS FORMATION 

Sister Barbara Doherty, S.R Director 
Reverend Francis Landry, C.P. Associate Director 

The Institute of Religious Formation, "The Formation Program for a Global Church," 
moved to Catholic Theological Union in July 1999, from St. Louis University where it 
was founded in 1971. The September to May Institute is designed primarily for women 
and men who are charged with formation responsibilities in Roman Catholic religious 
communities and seminaries. The Institute offers its participants the academic excellence 
of CTU, the experience of living, studying and working with people from across the 
globe, and the cultural and ministerial resources of the city of Chicago. Presentations, 
whether in classes for academic credit (15 credit hours) or in workshops, offer an 
exciting, spiritual, collaborative, intellectual, and experiential approach to learning, life, 
and formation ministry. Six themes relevant for formation ministry weave their ways 
throughout the nine months: The Formative Journey, Global Consciousness, Biblical 
Spirituality, the Contemplative Dimension and Earth Literacy — all undergirded by 
weekly theological reflection. 



MINISTRY STUDY PROGRAMS 

World Mission Program 

The Cross-Cultural Ministries Department oversees concentrations in World Mission in 
all degree programs. The World Mission program supplements the degree programs by 
sponsoring the annual World Mission Lecture, Mission Focus gatherings that provide 
student-led discussions about their mission and cross-cultural experiences, and other 
extra-curricular activities. Students and faculty meet the reality of cultural and religious 
pluralism in the global church in the classroom, in extra-curricular activities, and 
through the rich diversity of international students and others with mission and 
cross-cultural experience. Everyone is encouraged to reflect theologically and pastorally 
on the contemporary issues of the church's mission: witness and proclamation; liturgy, 
prayer, and contemplation; justice, peace, and the integrity of creation; interreligious 
dialogue; inculturation; and reconciliation. 

A wide selection of courses is offered which feature missiological dimensions in doctrinal, 
ethical, biblical, pastoral, and liturgical studies, as well as courses with a cross-cultural 
focus that explore the dynamics of culture and their implications for mission and ministry. 
There is a special course to help people prepare for cross-cultural mission and ministry. 
Students returning from the Overseas Training Program as well as returned and furloughed 
missionaries, often join the Mission Integration Seminar to process their mission 
experience and re-entry.

Spirituality Studies 

A rich variety of options are offered in the area of spirituality study. In addition to the 
courses offered by the Department of Spirituality and Pastoral Care, many other courses 
include a concern for spiritual life and ministry. Sabbatical and continuing education 
students frequently attest that they find the environment of CTU, including its liturgical 
life, cultural opportunities, atmosphere of community, and availability of spiritual 
directors and companions, most conducive for spiritual growth and reflection. The nearby 
Claret Center offers spiritual direction, counseling, workshops and retreats, and an 
internship in spiritual direction. 

For those desiring more structured study in spirituality, the M.A. and D.Min. programs 
offer specially-designed concentrations in this field. Students in M.A.P.S. or M.Div. 
programs can select from spirituality options for electives, ministry practica, and final 
projects. Certificate programs are available in Spiritual Formation and in Biblical 
Spirituality. For more information, contact the respective program directors. 

Hispanic Ministry 

Gilberto Cavazos-Gonzalez, O.F.M. Director 

Almost one out of every two Roman Catholics in the U.S.A. is Hispanic/Latino. Out 
of a growing concern that both ordained and non-ordained ministers be prepared for this 
reality, courses are provided in Hispanic Ministry and Pastoral Studies. These courses 
provide both Hispanic and non-Hispanic persons with a theological education that is 
historically, culturally, and religiously grounded in an Hispanic/Latino context and 
experience. CTU cooperates with the Hispanic Ministry programs of Lutheran School of 
Theology at Chicago and McCormick Theological Seminary to provide other educational 
experiences such as seminars, workshops, community dialogue, and special events. 
A concentration in Hispanic pastoral studies is available to M.A.P.S. students. 

Hyde Park Joint Pan-African Ministries Program 

The Hyde Park Cluster of Theological Schools' Joint Pan- African Ministries Program 
prepares men and women for effective ministries in the African- American community. 
It was established in response to the critical need for black church leadership to serve the 
practical and spiritual needs of its people. Through a series of courses, field experiences, 
and formation activities, students can enhance their preparation for ministry with a 
special focus on ministry in the African American community. 

There are eight core courses in the program: Biblical Interpretation from an Afro-centric 
Perspective; The History of the Black Church in North America; Black Theology; 
Ethical Implications of Ministry in the Black Church; Preaching in the Black Church; 
Pastoral Care in the Black Church; Black Spirituality; and Community Leadership. 
Workshops, lectures, fellowship occasions, and a mentoring program constitute the 
formation element of the program.

Native American Ministries 

Faculty in the Cross-Cultural Ministries department offer traveling seminars to the 
Rosebud and Pine Ridge Reservations in South Dakota several times a year. These 
seminars are an integral part of courses on Native American culture and spirituality. 
It is also possible to arrange special field placements in the Native American community 
in Chicago or on the reservations in South Dakota. Individual guidance is available to 
students interested in focusing on Native American studies. Information is available

Institute for Liturgical Consultants 

Gilbert Ostdiek, O.F.M. Director 

The Institute for Liturgical Consultants is an intensive, two-summer program for architects, 
artists, and liturgists who wish to serve as professional facilitators for communities 
renovating or building places of worship. The program can be taken either as professional 
enrichment for practicing consultants or as the first step for those preparing to take up 
this work. Applicants must have formal academic preparation and professional experience 
in one of these areas: architecture, art, liturgy, educational process, or change management. 
The Institute accepts a new group every third year (2003, 2006). 



OFF-CAMPUS STUDY 

Biblical Travel/Study Programs 

Mary Jo Curtsinger Director 

The Israel Study Programs and other travel/study programs to biblical lands offer 

students the opportunity to study the Bible in context. These programs are academic 

in orientation and fully accredited (with the exception of the Holy Land Retreat), and 

led by faculty of the Biblical Literature and Languages department. Schedules for the 

programs and other information are available from the Director of Biblical Travel/Study 

Programs. 

Fall Israel Study Program 

This is a quarter-long program (third week of August to mid-November) that combines 
biblical study with visits to historical and archaeological sites in Greece, Turkey, Israel, 
Jordan, and Egypt. Students earn graduate credits (four courses=12 quarter hours) which 
meet the biblical requirements of degree or certificate programs. Following the overseas 
portion of the program, there is an optional week-long re-entry seminar conducted at 
CTU that helps students to relate their experiences in the land of the Bible to theology, 
spirituality, and ministry. 

Spring Israel/Jordan Study Program 

In odd-numbered years, a three-week study tour of Israel and Jordan is offered. A spring 
quarter course (B 475: The History and Archaeology of Israel) offered at CTU is 
recommended as an excellent preparation for the study tour that begins at the close 

A Graduate School of Theology and Ministry 41 



Academic Programs 



of the spring quarter. (B 475 is not required for all travel participants.) Students may 
earn credits applicable to degree or certificate programs (six quarter hours if both B 475 
and the travel portion are taken.) 

Other Biblical Lands 

Most summers feature a study tour to other lands of importance to the understanding 
of the Bible and the history of early Christianity such as Greece, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, 
Egypt, North Africa, and Italy. The itinerary is approximately two weeks in length and 
varies from year to year in terms of the sites visited. One of these special programs is 
distinct from the Spring Israel Program (in odd years) and the Holy Land Retreat, but 
usually follows one of these directly on the calendar, and may be taken in conjunction 
with them. 

The Holy Land Retreat 

Each summer, a two- week spiritual retreat is offered in Israel. Conferences develop the 
religious impact of the biblical and archaeological memories of sites visited. A portion 
of each day is spent visiting biblical sites for reflection and prayer. 

Overseas Training Program 

The Overseas Training Program (OTP) is a supervised missionary-pastoral experience 
in a cross-cultural situation. The program entails at least one year of direct ministry with 
supervision, following the necessary language and cultural studies preparation. In dialogue 
with the Cross-Cultural Ministries Department (CCM), participating religious 
communities who have students in the OTP have the responsibility of organizing and 
administering the program for their students. Independent students plan their programs 
directly with the CCM Department. 

Louvain Study 

Students may spend one or two semesters studying in the English-speaking section 

of the Theological Faculty of the Catholic University of Louvain (Belgium). The specific 

details of this program are available from the Academic Dean. 

Tamale Institute of Cross-Cultural Studies 

Sponsored in cooperation with Tamale Institute of Cross-Cultural Studies, students 
have the opportunity to participate in a nine- week summer program or a three-week 
immersion program in Ghana, West Africa. The summer program extends from mid- June 
to mid- August each year and includes cultural orientation, intensive language study, 
village immersion, and debriefing. The immersion takes places in late August to 
mid-September and includes all four of the preceding components in shorter duration. 
Information is available from the chair of the Department of Cross-Cultural Ministries 
(summer program) or the Chicago Center for Global Ministries (cross-cultural quarter 
program).

The Sheptytsky Institute is a month-long summer program that integrates study of 
Eastern Christianity's theology, liturgy, and spirituality with an experience of Eastern 
monastic life at Holy Transfiguration Monastery at Redwood Valley, California. The 
Institute was founded at CTU in 1986 and its summer program remains affiliated though 
its headquarters at St. Paul's University in Ottawa, Canada. Students can earn six credits 
applicable to the M.Div., M.A., or M.A.P.S. degrees. Information is available from the 
Office of the Academic Dean.

the service of the church. The good of the church is the chief criterion for decisions 
concerning whether or not to accept, advance, and graduate any student in programs 
preparing people for professional ministry. Thus, Catholic Theological Union reserves 
the right to accept or to reject any applicant, the right to advance or dismiss any student 
and the right to recommend or refuse any student for graduation. All such decisions 
made by Catholic Theological Union are final.

International Applicants 

In addition to meeting the general and specific admission requirements, applicants

ACADEMIC POLICIES 

Student Classification 

Students are admitted to degree programs after completion of admission requirements 
and prerequisites of the respective programs. They are candidates for the degree after 
completing the procedures listed in the respective degree manuals. Continuing education 
students are students who are enrolled but are not seeking a degree. Special students are 
those without a baccalaureate degree or its equivalent. 

Catholic Theological Union follows the quarter system. There are 10 weeks in each 
quarter — the fall and winter quarters have an ll tn week for reading and examinations. 
The normal course load is 12 credit hours per quarter though students enrolling for at 
least nine hours per quarter are considered full-time students. Students who register 
for less than nine credits in any quarter are part-time students. Auditors are students 
who enroll in courses but do not take them for credit. 

Program Directors 

Each academic program has a director who is responsible for general oversight of the 
program. The program director insures that the program's regulations and procedures 
are followed by students enrolled in the programs. 

Program Manuals 

There is a program manual for each degree program. It is available from the program 
director. Copies are also available in the library. The manuals provide complete academic 
information and the official regulations and procedures specific to each program. 

48 Catholic Theological Union 



Academic Information 



Students are responsible for becoming acquainted with the manual of the degree they 
are pursuing. 

Academic Advisors 

Each student will be assigned an academic advisor from the faculty. While the academic 
advisor is to monitor the student's progress, it is the student who is responsible for 
meeting all requirements for graduation according to the specifications of the appropriate 
program manual. 

Bias-free Language 

The CTU Statement of Identity says: "Reflecting the diverse cultures, nationalities and 
races of women and men who make up the CTU community, the school sees the pursuit 
of justice, inclusivity and collaboration as integral to its ethos." In light of that statement, 
all instructors and students are expected to use nondiscriminatory language when referring 
to human beings in classroom presentations and discussions, in written materials and 
papers for courses, and in theses and projects. While recognizing the complexity of 
the cultural contexts and theological issues around the question of how God is named, 
everyone is also encouraged to use gender-neutral or gender-balanced language and 
imagery in so far as possible when they speak about God. 

Plagiarism 

Academic integrity demands that a student acknowledge all sources employed in the 
preparation of written assignments, whether in the use of exact quotations or in substantial 
reproduction of ideas. Failure to do so (plagiarism) normally will result in a failing grade 
for the course and may also result in dismissal. 

Registration 

All students are to complete their registration and arrange for payment of fees at the 
time and place announced by the Registrar, who will provide detailed instructions 
for registration. 

Students are to plan their registration by consulting their academic advisors. The advisor's 
signature must appear on registration forms before the Registrar can accept them. 
The academic advisor and the faculty involved must also approve any change in the 
student's course selection, using a form the student will secure from the Registrar. 
Adding or dropping courses is allowed through the first week of the quarter without 
academic or financial penalty. 

Auditing Courses 

Instructors may permit auditors to attend their courses. While auditors may participate 
in class discussions, instructors are not required to evaluate any written work from them 
nor are auditors required to take tests or examinations. While audit courses are listed 
on the student's permanent record, no grade is given. Space for auditors may be limited 
in some courses. Permission of the academic advisor and the instructor involved is 

A Graduate School of Theology and Ministry 49 



Academic Information 



necessary to change from credit to audit. Information about changing status is available 
from the Registrar. 

Withdrawals 

Students may withdraw from any course up to the end of the seventh week of the quarter. 
They are to secure the withdrawal form from the Registrar and seek the approval of 
their academic advisor and the instructor involved. Withdrawals after the seventh week 
will be noted on the student's record as either "Withdrew Passing" (WP) or "Withdrew 
Failing" (WF). 

Independent Study 

Opportunities for independent study make it possible for students to pursue interests not 
covered by regular course offerings. Interested students may contact a member of the 
faculty who will define learning tasks and course requirements. Students are responsible 
for completing the necessary form before registration. This form is available from the 
Registrar. Courses that are regularly offered are not normally taken as an independent 
study. Independent studies must be taken for credit. Accepting responsibility for 
supervising independent studies is left to the discretion of faculty members. 

Extensions and Incompletes 

Each instructor sets the deadline for the submission of all course work. Students must 
petition the instructor to receive an incomplete (I), a grade that denotes that the work for 
a course has not been completed by the deadline. Students are to remove an incomplete 
by the end of the following quarter. If the student fails to do so, the grade will be 
changed to a "Permanent Incomplete" (PI). In either case, no credit is given and the 
course must be repeated if it is a required course. 

Students who do not submit a petition for extension and do not complete the course work 
by the end of the quarter will receive a "Permanent Incomplete" (PI). 

Students must secure the petition for extension form from the Registrar, who can provide 
additional information on the policies and procedures on incompletes. The granting of 
extensions and incompletes is the sole prerogative of the instructor. No instructor is 
required to grant an extension. 

Incompletes cannot be given by visiting instructors or by instructors who will be on 
sabbatical leave the following quarter. 

Students who have two incompletes or who are on academic probation must consult 
with the Academic Dean before registration.

Academic Information 



Grades 

The instructor is solely responsible for evaluating the course work of students and 
assigning grades. At the end of each quarter, the student will receive a grade report 
which will list the total hours accumulated and the cumulative grade point average. 
The Registrar is responsible for distributing the grade reports. 

Instructors assign a letter grade unless the course follows a pass-fail system. 

The Registrar uses a numerical system to compute the student's grade point average 

according to the following scale: 



A range: Excellent work 





A+/A 


4.00 




A- 


3.75 


B range: Good work 








B+

Academic Probation 

Students in degree programs must maintain a 3.0 cumulative Grade Point Average 
[GPA] to graduate. Students whose GPA falls below 3.0 in two successive quarters are 
subject to academic probation. Students failing to show improvement are subject to 
dismissal. More information about academic probation is available from the Academic 
Dean. CTU reserves the right to dismiss students whose academic progress or 
adjustment to the school is unsatisfactory. Students who are dismissed for academic 
reasons cannot be readmitted to a degree program.

Advanced Standing 

Students beginning the M.Div. and M.A.RS. programs may petition to receive advanced 
standing for previous work in foundational (300-level) courses. Students should consult 
with their respective program directors. If the petition is granted, the hours in those 
foundational areas become elective. 

Credit by Examination 

Students in the M.Div. and M.A.RS. programs may petition to receive credit by 
examination in many foundational areas and some advanced areas in their respective 
programs. Interested students may consult their respective program manuals 
and directors. 

Transfer of Credit 

Graduate credit in theology, completed within the last seven years for a grade of "B" 
or better, may be transferred to Catholic Theological Union. Ordinarily no more than 
nine quarter hours may be transferred into the M.A. and M.A.RS. programs and no 
more than 36 quarter hours into the M.Div. program. Students wishing to transfer credits 
must consult with their program directors. Forms for this purpose are available from the 
Registrar's office. Such credits will be recognized only after students have successfully 
completed one year of academic work. Courses taken as part of CTU-approved cooperative 
programs are considered CTU credit and will not be counted as transfer credit. 

Credit by Cross-Registration 

Students enrolled in master's level programs may take courses at any of the other 
members of the Association of Chicago Theological Schools at no extra charge and 
at the University of Chicago with a significant reduction of tuition. Credit for courses 
taken in these schools may be applied to CTU degree requirements. Students are 
encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. Up to one third of a student's work 
may be done in these schools; by special arrangement this may be increased to one half. 

Transfer of Courses Taken after Admission 

After admission, students are expected to take courses for their degrees at CTU, one 
of the ACTS schools, or the University of Chicago. If a student wishes to take a course 
elsewhere for credit toward a CTU degree, permission must be obtained in advance. 
Students are to consult their respective program manuals and directors for the appropriate 
procedures. 

Grievances 

There are times in the life of any institution when conflicts may arise. The Student 
Handbook has a detailed description of the grievance procedures that deal with such 
circumstances. These procedures have been designed to protect the student, the 
instructor, and the administration in the resolution of the grievance.

Graduation 

Students who anticipate completing all the requirements of their degree or certificate 
programs in a particular year must apply for graduation with the Registrar during the 
fall quarter of the academic year they intend to graduate. Students are responsible for 
completing all requirements of their degree program. Degrees are granted by the Board 
of Trustees upon recommendation of the faculty. 

Transcripts 

A student may request in writing that the Registrar send an academic transcript to 
designated persons or institutions. No transcripts are sent without a written request and 
only when all accounts are paid. The first transcript is sent free of charge. For all others, 
payment of the fee must accompany the request. Transcripts submitted as part of the
